Robovie-X is coming to get you


Remember the cock fighter we peeped back in August? He's far more deadly than we had imagined and now up for pre-order in Japan. At least his Robovie-X underpinnings are. The 13.5-inch / 2.86-pound bot manufactured by JR Robotics should start shipping in February for a pre-order price of ¥94,500 (about $856). This robot features the impressive pliability of his lessor RB2000 brother while including new voice response sensors and weaponry. In fact, the two can share parts in a mutant servo mashup only a mother robot could love. Oh did we mention this one can track targets and then blast it with missiles? Gulp, see for yourself in the video after the break.
